This country is giving free chickens to vaccinated residents

Published

on

Free chickens are being given to vaccinated residents in one Indonesian village.

Older people in Indonesia are receiving free chickens if they are vaccinated against COVID-19.

The program is part of the Cianjur Regency’s push to increase the number of vaccines administered to citizens aged 45 and over.

Galih Apria is the assistant police commissioner in the sub-district of Pecat. He says older residents were hesitant about getting their shots.

“Early on, there was a lot of misinformation and hoaxes about the vaccine circulating online, especially on social media,” Mr Apria said.

“Lots of elderly people thought that it does not prevent COVID-19 but would cause serious diseases and even death.”

25 in 250 local residents were vaccinated before the program. But since the free chicken campaign started, 250 people are lining up per day.

Mr Apria explains that free chickens are a sign of respect towards the elderly population. The chickens are reportedly easing people’s apprehensions with the health officials and vaccine.

Around 12 million Indonesians are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or 4.3 percent of the entire population. However, over 53,000 Indonesians have lost their lives to COVID-19.

Extremism top concern for U.S. voters ahead of election

Published

on

Worries over political extremism and threats to democracy have surged to the forefront as the primary concern for U.S. voters, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown in the upcoming November election.

The three-day Reuters Ipsos poll, which concluded on Sunday, found that 21% of respondents identified “political extremism or threats to democracy” as the nation’s most pressing issue, narrowly edging out concerns about the economy and immigration.

President Joe Biden appears to hold a slight advantage over his predecessor, Donald Trump, in addressing this issue, with 34% of respondents believing Biden has a better approach compared to 31% for Trump.

The findings underscore the deeply polarized political landscape in America, with Democrats prioritizing extremism as the top issue, while Republicans overwhelmingly focus on immigration.

Independent voters

The poll also highlights the pivotal role of independent voters, with nearly a third citing extremism as their primary concern, followed closely by immigration and the economy.

This suggests that the handling of extremism could significantly influence voter behavior in the upcoming election.

The rise of extremism as a top concern comes amid ongoing political turmoil, with Trump continuing to challenge the legitimacy of U.S. institutions and perpetuate false claims of election fraud.

His rhetoric has not only fueled division but also incited violence, as seen in the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.
